Manchester United have been linked with Moussa Dembele for a very long time and the latest reports seem positive for the Red Devils.
According to Manchester Evening News, the French striker could leave Lyon in the summer transfer window and he would find it hard to reject a move to Old Trafford.
As per MEN, sources close to the player are excited by the idea of Dembele playing for Man Utd but the final decision will be taken by Solskjaer.
Last year, The Daily Record revealed that the former Championship player is keen on joining the Red Devils. Not so long ago, Sky Sports‘ Kaveh Solhekol also claimed that Dembele’s dream would be to play for Manchester United in the Champions League.
It must be remembered that after the decision taken by Ligue 1 to end the campaign, Lyon have finished 7th in the table, which means they will not be taking part in any sort of European football (next term) for the first time since 1997.
It must also be taken into consideration that United were 5th in the table when the season was suspended and if it is canceled, then the Red Devils will once again miss out on Champions League football. The latest update provided by the Premier League is that all the clubs want to complete the remaining fixtures.
Dembele was in brilliant form for the Ligue 1 side before COVID-19 arrived on the scene to halt football. In all competitions, the 23-year-old striker scored 22 goals and provided 7 assists in 42 appearances.
The £90million-rated striker (The Sun) has already proved his worth in England with Fulham and was a major hit in Scotland with Celtic under the management of former Liverpool coach Brendan Rogders.
At Old Trafford, Solskjaer needs to adequately strengthen his strike-force in the summer. MEN claim that the Frenchman is viewed as being the right age for Manchester United. In your view, should the Norwegian boss splash the cash to sign Moussa Dembele?
